The Power of the Couch

First Question: Who doesn’t want to be in shape? In a world dominated by Kim Kardashian look-a-likes and make shift models who doesn’t want to beat the curve and sport one of the best bodies on the block? If it were only that simple. For many of us, getting in shape is easier said than done. Many of us lead very busy lives and the small time we do have to ourselves is spent vegging out on the couch. The couch is a very powerful thing but our will can surpass that power. Getting in shape doesn’t always require hitting the gym five times a week. For those of us who want to stay in shape but just can’t seem to find the time this post is for you!
